Gigabot X - An industrial 3D printer-to 3D print directly from reclaimed plastic pellets or flake.

Gigabot X is a pellet printer to 3D print using recycled plastic.

It is low-cost high-quality large-format 3D printer that uses recycled fused filament. Nowadays filament is marked up about 10 times over the cost of plastic feedstock. This makes 3-D printing large objects relatively expensive. Gigabot X allows for the use of much less expensive pellets of plastic, as well as to use shredded recycled materials to produce new objects, giving anyone at anytime and anywhere the opportunity to manufacture local solutions sustainably.
